Arsenal close to signing of STUNNING striker 0

Posted on July 20, 2015 by admin

It might still be a subject for debate among the Arsenal fans but I think that most of us agree with Thierry Henry about the club needing more options than the French international Olivier Giroud to score our goals.

We do have the excellent Alexis Sanchez of course and our midfielders chip in with goals but it remains to be seen whether Danny Welbeck can push on and challenge Giroud for that central striker position. And the former Man United man really needs to improve his goal tally to go along with his good all round game.

Arsenal rocked by striker transfer snub!! 0

He has been the subject of a large number of Arsenal transfer rumours this summer and was certainly one of the strikers that the Arsenal fans were hoping that Arsene Wenger would add to the attacking options of the Gunners for the season ahead.

Plus it was thought that the Lyon and France international star Alexandre Lacazette would be more easily available and probably cheaper than other strikers linked with the club, such as Karim Benzema and Edinson Cavani. So the news reported by ESPN today is a real blow.

Arsenal BRILLIANT so Bring On Chelsea!! 0

Wow that was some pretty good stuff from Arsenal, especially when you consider that we were playing in the very tough climate and conditions of Singapore and against a decent Premier League side that is theoretically further along in their pre-season preparations than us.

However, Arsenal never gave them a sniff as we passed the ball around with slickness and accuracy. With the likes of Cazorla, Ramsey and Ozil in the centre of the pitch backed up by a fired up Theo Walcott and Jack Wilshere on the flanks, Arsenal ran rings around our opponents and were cruising in a 3-0 lead thanks to Walcott, Cazorla and Ozil when they did get what turned out to be a consolation goal.

Arsenal to soon have ‘new Zlatan’ up front? 0

You have to admire the self confidence of the young France international striker I suppose, as even though he has just been released by Arsenal to go to Holland and play on loan for Ajax, Yaya Sanogo has compared himself to the former Ajax star Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

To be fair to Sanogo, he is only just 22-years old and has plenty of time to hone his game and start scoring the goals that would make the comparison a little less unlikely. He has the stature for it as well, being just an inch shorter than the Swedish international but he could do with bulking up a bit and getting a few tattoos while he is at it.

Why Arsenal boss is being patient on Benzema transfer 2

Posted on July 17, 2015 by admin

After quite a few Arsenal transfer rumours linking us with a move for the France international striker this summer, The Sun revved up the rumour mill today by reporting that the Gunners were ready with an offer of around £40 million to tempt his current club Real Madrid to sell.

But the Arsenal fans soon had to rein in our hopes of signing this striker, as Arsene Wenger personally denied the rumour in a pre-season press conference reported by Sky Sports. Or did he?

The Arsenal boss had this to say on the subject, “I don’t know where that story has come from. But that’s not happening at the moment.”

Arsenal turn to Italy for defensive transfer 0

Posted on July 16, 2015 by admin

Arsenal fans are still eagerly waiting to see in which positions in the Arsenal squad, if any, are going to be boosted by a signing or two in the summer transfer window. Many of us want a new centre forward but there are still plenty that feel are sorted when it comes to creating and scoring goals and that it is the other end of the pitch that needs help.

The manager clearly agreed or he would not have signed Petr Cech from Chelsea and while Wenger has suggested that the 33-year old’s experience and organisational skills will help the Arsenal defenders, we have still got room to bring in a new player or two.

Arteta – The rewards are now coming to Arsenal 0

When Arsenal captain Mikel Arteta signed an extension, it may have come as a surprise to a section of the supporters. Not that the Spanish midfielder is unpopular with the fans but because this may have signaled Arsene Wenger’s intent on signing a new defensive midfielder.

With the captain extending his stay at the club by another year, it more or less put curtains on the hopes of any new defensive midfielder signings. Well, at least, temporarily till the point Wenger comes out with a concrete bid for any one.

This new striker CAN fire Arsenal to Premier League trophy 2

Posted on July 15, 2015 by admin

Arsene Wenger has been pretty cautious in the summer transfer window so far, adding just Petr Cech to the Arsenal first team. But he has been open about his confidence in the squad already at his disposal, especially if they can stay relatively injury free.

Getting Cecg from Chelsea should be a big help top our chances of beating Jose Mourinho’s team to the title and there is a lot of strength and depth all over the pitch as well, but there is no secret that one of the positions we may need to strengthen is the centre forward role.

Arsenal´s DM transfer hunt finally over? 1

Posted on July 15, 2015 by admin

When it was clear that Arsenal were not going to beat our Premier League rivals Man United to the transfer of Morgan Schneiderlin from Southampton, despite a mountain of Arsenal transfer rumours over the last two years linking us with the Frenchman and recent reports suggesting that the player himself would have preferred to join the Gunners than the Red Devils, it did not necessarily mean the end of our hopes that Arsene Wenger would sign a top quality central midfielder this summer.

Wenger explains why Arsenal did NOT want Sterling transfer 0

Posted on July 14, 2015 by admin

I am not sure whether the Arsenal boss would say the same thing in private, but speaking in public today he did not condemn what many football experts see as a hugely inflated transfer fee of nearly £50 million for Raheem Sterling.

Arsene Wenger is famous for his views on the crazy price of transfers in modern football but as he explained in a report on the Arsenal website, the owners of Man City can easily afford to splash top dollar on players, unlike Arsenal.
